Forum on Mandatory Detention: How it began, how we can end it
As part of the 20th year anniversary of mandatory detention, RRAN hosted a special forum examining the history of mandatory detention of refugees, the case against it and the role activism has played in challenging it. For those who couldn’t make it to Monday’s forum, here’s footage of the presentation proper — keep an eye out for the Q&A session…
Guest speakers included activists who have been involved in the campaign for 20 years, who have seen the political and public landscape surrounding refugees transform into what it is today. The growth and change of the campaign against it was also examined.
